Our expert says:
A blood pressure of 140 or higher at the top and 90 or higher at the bottom is doing damage to the kidneys, heart, eyes and brain - even if you don't feel sick and have no symptoms ( that is why hypertension is called the "silent killer") You are at risk for developing kidney failure, blindness, heart disease and stroke. Your doctor may need to review your medication. You can also try to add natural health supplements to your current treatment - see http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/herbsvitaminsek/a/Hypertension.htm. Also try taking one teaspoon of honey each morning if you are not diabetic.
